About Cresci Exemplar Pro Font Family

Cresci Exemplar™ was originally designed by Giovanni Francesco Cresci, the 16th century Milanese writing master. These letters from his book Essemplare are some of the most elegant capitalis monumentalis ever produced and served as a model for later inscriptions on statues and monuments all throughout Italy.

Painstakingly made from multiple high-resolution references, Cresci Exemplar™ Pro, accurately matches the master’s original lines. It can be used at large sizes without sacrificing elegance. Cresci’s attention to detail and delicate curves allow his titling capitals to stand out and elevate text.

The numbers of Cresci Exemplar™ Pro have been professionally designed to match and complement the letterforms of Cresci’s original alphabet. Symbols have either been faithfully transcribed or thoughtfully designed both to be pleasing to today’s reader and congruent with classic lines.

Released for the 450th anniversary of Cresci’s Il Perfetto Scrittore.
